3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I really don't know much about the Greek club members or their lives here.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Though Concordia is accepting of many folks from all different types of backgrounds, a lot of the students are Caucasian.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't personally had an internship, but I know they are not too difficult to come by based upon the success rates of my fellow students.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: The music program is out of this world. I am saddened that Concordia does not have a geology program though.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: People accept each other here. Though there are some tight friend groups, once one breaks through the initial wall, the people are incredibly nice. Ensembles are an instigator of such friendships.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: It's handy to have transportation that circles around the three university campuses in this area.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I am a music major. The professors truly know the material and present it in clear and exciting ways. The relationships built amongst music faculty and students is phenomenal.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: This college really pulled me through. They made my studies here possible.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There are is one sorority but there is no housing for it, but greek life is not something you go to Concordia for.

4 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors here are awesome! They care about each of their students and are very willing to meet with students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Every student must live in the dorms for the first two years, and the second year a lottery number is assigned to each student to pick their dorm with their selected roommates.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The Fargo/Moorhead community is great! There are two universities within 15 minutes of campus so there are a lot of college kids in the area.

Weather: It's pretty cold, but it is manageable if you are from the Midwest.

Transportation: It's free and great. The area is easy to live in.

4 College Freshman

High school seniors are constantly barraged by numerous colleges, all with one basic claim: that they are the best, the cream, the institution with which you not only aspire to be involved, but the institution that fits your exact personality traits. Concordia is no different than the rest of the institutions vying for new freshman classes. However, the college delivers on its promises and, more importantly, does not entice potential students with false or skewed information. You know exactly what you get when enrolling at Concordia, and that is by no means a bad thing. On the contrary, it is nice to know what is explicitly offered.

Some students have their doubts upon applying and accepting freshman status at Concordia, but it is an overall fantastic experience. It is a small, private, liberal arts college that won’t consume all of your money, at least not as much as other similar private schools. There are problems—it is definitely not a utopia—but the positives tend to outweigh the negatives. The professors genuinely want students to succeed, and they exemplify that desire by advising educational student groups, participating in extracurricular events, and supporting students when they give presentations or submit research projects. With all of this work outside of class, students have a great opportunity to show they have leadership skills and that they can cope with the stresses and issues that occur every day in the working world. Many current students, given the opportunity, would choose this school again. The entirety of Concordia commits to providing excellent academics and extremely satisfactory social events. There are very few things to complain about as a Concordia student, and the things with the potential to be complained about are trivial at best.
